The video of a baby girl seeing clearly for the first time shows the power of eye care.
Seeing is believing.
That moment when you see what your parents actually look like:
Oh my, that's adorable. No wonder it has millions of views.
Piper's mom said she wanted the video to raise and spread awareness about the importance of eye health in infants.
"This was her reaction of her first time being able to see our faces," Jessica Sinclair told WKRC about her baby daughter Piper.
When Piper put on those glasses to see clearly for the first time — her whole world opened up. A very touching and life-changing moment for her and her family.
What if more kids could see the world around them?
There are an estimated 19 million children who are visually impaired around the world, according to the World Health Organization. But here's the kicker: 12 million of those kids have visual problems that could be easily diagnosed and corrected. I repeat: easily.
Most of them just lack the resources available to make it happen, like eye exams and glasses, and the training to help.
Here are four groups (out of many!) helping others to see better.
20|20|20 empowers local doctors and nurses around the world to help restore vision to those who need it in their communities, through free training, equipment, and financial aid.
Unite for Sight has provided eye care to more than 1,100,000 patients living in extreme poverty with their local partner eye clinics.
Let's use this precious moment for Piper and her family to recognize the importance of eye health and to celebrate those working to help others see a clearer world.
